a politically important lifeline to obama, u.n. ambassador dr. susan rice. but the overall issue remains highly political, highly partisan. even personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator john mccain, who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states, for two weeks afterwards, to deny that that was the case, is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. acting cia director mike morerel on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> that this was a spontaneous protest that involved something militant. that was the best information. they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people back here in washington continue to deny additional security. and they continued to do away with security t
much and where? >> well i think this is a tremendous opportunity for barack obama to lead. he chose not to do that at the start of his administration in 08. instead of focusing on the economy went right after obamacare. he is basketball player. i think he could pull the ultimate head fake and actually not raise rates on small businesses. the markets would soar. he would get a lot of goodwill. he gets the budget in place and doesn't touch tax rates on small businesses, i think his approval ratings and market goes through the roof. rick: i had thought maybe we would hear from pete where the republicans would be willing to compromise instead of where he thinks the president would be willing to come promize. but, sometime mon, that said, 47% of the american people voted for mitt romney and the points that he was making during the campaign. don't those folks have any kind of say in this? >> sure absolutely. i think, the country wants, i think as the president said, that he got a mandate for action and i think it is now going to come down to his leadership along with the house and senate
